Hey guys !!

Started the heat transfer business only few months ago.
Bought a used Epson Stylus Photo 1280.
Worked all right for a while. Than I had to buy a new
CIS system, because the old one broke.
So I installed the new system (from 123refills.com) and it was working ok for a few days......but after that...
what happens is....it prints perfectly for a couple of hours and than it does not print anything, or barely nothing.
Head cleaning lots of times, check everything and still could not figure out what's wrong. Ohh, and I should finish an order of 150 shirts :( don't know how.
I am not sure if the CIS fails or the printer.
Please give me suggestions.
Thanks.

Can you see the ink in the tubes that lead from the bottles to the ink cartridges?

Is your CIS sitting level with the printer?

What result are you getting with a nozzle check? Nothing?

Have you tried printing a page of color bars; waiting 30 seconds; and then trying the nozzle check again?

Have you tried cleaning the print head? Print Head Maintenance -=INKJETPRINTERHELP.US=-

P.S. Don't do repetitive head cleanings or you may damage the print heads.
